  10. 10.

  11. 11. •Patented Variable Stripe RAID allows RAID stripe sizes to vary •Maximum level of flash module data protection •Maximum wear life Variable Stripe RAID™ Advantages: •Protects data from a chip failure •Dynamically re-stripes data at a sub-chip level •Preserves life, protection and performance IBM VSR™ protected flash modules: Now we can build our system using far more advanced technology than SSDs 1 2 3 P The Smarter Storage Approach IBMCloud Enabled Flash Solutions http://www.ibm.com/systems/storage/flash/
  12. 12. Flash Module Reliability – Safety Beyond Compare • When Vendors sell flash storage, based on SSDs, it is critical those systems be able to survive double drive failures. Customers would like to be able to survive more than two failures, but are left with no option other than to take what they can get. • IBM wasn’t satisfied with the limitations of off-the-shelf SSDs. We designed “true” flash systems where we work directly with the flash chips. IBM created dedicated flash modules to provide customers with greater performance and reliability. In a 5.7TB FlashSystem module, a quarter of the flash chips on the module can fail before it needs to be replaced. • 10 of the 64 flash chips in a module can fail without issue. • If the 11th chip fails, the module will issue a warning, but continue to function • If the 17th chip fails, the module is halted and the hot spare is brought in. At this point, the system is still online and rebuilding the parity protection It would take another 17+ chip failures on a different single module to see a dual drive failure Safety beyond compare!

And that can obstruct your business operations. How do you efficiently resolve these costly and high-impact problems? Of course, your storage device service agreements with IBM enable you to access robust support to help resolve high- severity storage challenges. But without a technical advisor, your staff still needs to know how to access help and determine the issue. With a technical advisor for storage from IBM, you can gain continued technical support for critical issues—as well as proactive advice for problem prevention. • Improve uptime Continued assistance from one specialist can resolve high-severity problems more quickly • Enhance efficiency Work with IBM to promote staff productivity through support protocols and critical- problem management techniques • Avert problems Your consultant can offer time-tested methods to help you prevent outages and use IBM support more effectively Scalable Performance Agile Integration Enduring Economics http://www.ibm.com/systems/storage/flash/ IBM Technical Advisor for Storage Now included with FlashSystems!
